Grateful Heart Monday: Miracles!

Yay! Today is Monday and I am super excited about having a grateful heart!

I have so many things I am grateful for, but this last week our community was brought together by a little girl in our town who became sick very fast! Thursday morning, very early Matthew and I woke up to our phones going off. Both phone calls were prayer chain for a family in our church. Their little girl, Carley, was being airlifted to Memphis. During the day, she had gone home from school with a headache and fever and by 1am she was being airlifted. They had no clue what was going on. The day and night continued to get worse. By 11am, we were getting phone calls that doctors were giving her a 1% chance of surviving. I can not tell you the pain my heart felt. All I could do was cry and pray! Prayers were going up everywhere for this sweet family. Within a few hours, we were getting calls that she was showing signs of slight improvement. The next day,  we were still getting good news reports! This child is a miracle! We watched God take a 1%  chance and work with it! She is still in ICU and has a long road. They still need many prayers but prayer is a wonderful thing and it does work! 
I am so grateful for prayer and that our God is in the miracle business! This whole situation hit home with me. I have been a bawl bag the whole time. I have felt like I have been right there in the ICU with them. For all you new readers, I delivered our 2nd child at 27 weeks and spent right at 5 months in the NICU with him. It was a life changing moment for our family. You can go back and read all about it
Dreaming ...this was just the beginning and you can read on from there! 
Thursday when we got the call, my heart sank because I know what it is like to see your baby lay in the hospital bed and there is nothing you can do. I have seen Hudson flat line several times and had no clue if they could get him back...I have been told he would HAVE to have surgeries and then ended up not having them...I have been told he had a small chance of survival...I have been told he would have many things wrong.......It has been a hard road, and I know there are many more out there who have seen worse, but I know that no matter what God is there! God is with us and I know that we will all receive that healing we are looking for whether it is here or in heaven! So again, I am so grateful for prayers and being able to go to our Heavenly Father about what we need! 

Link up with Ember Grey and tell us what you are grateful for! 
Hope everyone has a blessed day!
Lots of love..
